How Long Is Coxsackie Virus Contagious?

Answer

A person with Coxsackie Virus is most contagious the first week they are infected. They can continue to be contagious until the blister-like lesions disappear. This is a virus that is easily spread through sneezing, coughing, unwashed hands, and surfaces contaminated by feces. To prevent spreading washing hands often, cover mouth when coughing and sneezing, and ensure that all surfaces are sanitized.
